Glad to hear Skarsgard is getting more roles. He’s as talented as he is handsome.

Sounds brilliant, although I don’t think there’s much point remaking this… Hey, any excuse to see Alexander Skarsgard on the big screen :)

The guy in the blue on the right, with that cute facial pose he’s making has always been attractive. Which is why I never understood why he went for certain roles that were cheesy . He was kinda boring in X-Men. He needs to learn to be more intense and not just “sitting pretty” in his roles. Some people have a face where they can’t really move it and it either looks boring or more appealing.
I’ve always been attracted to guys that had face-cuts like Chris Pine and this guy in the blue shirt.

Yay! I LOVE Alexander Skarsgard! He’s so hot! But not to take away from his talent, I love his works too.

I’m excited we get to hear more about him, hope he gets more roles :D

yes i’ll watch anything with alexander in it cuz he is so hot

@Megan: You are so right!


The guy you keep calling “guy in blue” as a game! If only you’d take the time to read the article. Plus, he as done many more roles that don’t have him “seating pretty”.

FYI, his name is James Marsden!

i love alexander skarsgard and i love true blood

Alexander Skarsgard has always been getting lots of roles, it’s just that now Americans and the entire world know him because of True Blood, but he has a very extensive acting resume in Sweden. He’s very well-know and well-regarded over there. Also voted Sweden Sexiest Man Alive 6 or 7 times!!!
He’s great. Amazing actor. A natural.
I’m a huge Alex fan.
I’m too very excited that he’s moving into the Hollywood big scene. Looking forward to see him at Comic Con 2009!!!!
He’ll be there on the 25th of July.
